How to choose the topics for the videos ?
There are a few considerations to make before deciding on the topic for the video.
It has to be interesting for your students. When the topic is relevant for them they more involved in the process and creation. For example, one of my students’ assignment was to create a public announcement that includes a message that they would like to convey.
The video can be around the theme of the unit that you are dealing with in class.
Teachers can use the creation of a video as an alternative assessment.
After filming the video and editing it, teachers can publish the final products on YouTube for the whole world to view. (Of course you need parental approval) .
There’s no doubt that there’s an added value to this because when students produce their content for a broader audience they pay more attention to polishing it and presenting it the best way possible.
